OG Kush is a variety of cannabis originating in the south of California. Since its creation at the dawn of the Nineties, it spread throughout the world to become one of the most popular varieties in the world thanks to its composition rich in terpenes and cannabinoids.
As a popular strain, OG Kush can be found in almost every country on every continent. With its high THC content and complex aroma and flavor, there is no doubt that this strain will remain a favorite for a long time to come.
What is OG Kush?
OG Kush is a hybrid strain that combines Indica and Sativa genes. The first traces of this variety go back to the Nineties, when a handful of cultivators in California tried to create their own variety of cannabis. The exact combination of genes is not known, but some think that it is a cross between a Chemdawg and a Lemon Thai/Old World Paki Kush.
Since its inception, OG Kush has spread to other regions such as Colorado and Michigan, making it one of the most popular varieties in the world. It is also appreciated for its high THC content, which is around 20% with an average of 17%, and its cannabidiol (CBD) concentration. The latter is between 0.05 and 0.5%.
The advantages of the OG Kush
The main reason why OG Kush is so popular is its composition rich in terpenes and cannabinoids. Terpenes are the components responsible for the psychotropic effects of cannabis, as well as for its exciting aromas and flavors. When terpenes are combined with cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, they produce a personal profile that offers a full range of relaxing, stimulating and therapeutic effects.
- Relaxing effect: OG Kush provides a feeling of physical and mental relaxation that helps relieve pain and fatigue.
- High yield: OG Kush plants produce significantly higher than average yields, making it a very profitable variety to grow.
- Fungal Resistance: The California soil where OG Kush originated is relatively dry and arid, which has helped the variety develop good resistance to pathogens and mold.
- Aroma and flavour: OG Kush is known for its powerful lemon smell, woody flavour and piney finish. These characteristics make it a variety very sought-after by the consumers.
